Day Trips from Fuschl am See
Sights and points of interest in the Salzkammergut Lake District
The diversity of the places of interest in the Salzkammergut area and Salzburg County is phenomenal. A trip to one of the historical salt mines in Hallstatt or Hallein for example is a fascinating day out for young and old. Just as impressive are the ice caves in Werfen or Dachstein. In the town of Bad Ischl an imperial atmosphere still lingers in the air and the Open Air Museum in Großgmain will take you on a journey even further back in time. Buildings from 4 centuries have been lovingly restored and relocated in the Open Air Museum giving visitors a fascinating insight into life as it used to be in the County of Salzburg. Make the most of your vacation with excursions in Salzburg County. A short jaunt with your car or local bus will take you to the Schafberg Mountain with its famous cog railway and to the Zwölferhorn Mountain in St. Gilgen with its nostalgic cable car.
While in summer the lakes and rustic mountain hut restaurants play the leading role, in autumn traditional cooking, local produce, harvest festivals and time-honoured customs dominate village life and step into the spotlight. Farmers' markets selling freshly cooked specialities, and organic farm products are a meeting point for tourists and locals alike, folk music, dancing and singing make the autumn a colourful and authentic time to visit the Salzkammergut.
The Salzkammergut Lake District is well worth visiting at any time of the year and provides the perfect setting for an unforgettable holiday. Enjoy the many sights and points of interest in the Salzkammergut region.
